Yes Liam, details details details! :)
That is a nice "before" shot, and it is about a year before we came aboard.
John, yes we are having fun.
It is always fun when we are working for clients as great as these homeowners!

Chris, Is that half round gutter? When you do another, my brother at Classic gutters will bend a raduis gutter for you, if you send him the pattern. It works better with a box or K style gutter believe it or not, but he also can bend the half round gutter. If you had the pieces bent at the arc of a 8 foot radius, you would not have one third the number of pieces to cut and fit together. The machine grabs the ends of the gutter or whatever and stretches it and then bends it around a frame of the differing radius's. A lot of "trial and error" to get it just the best as you can, but still a lot faster and neater than doing all of the small pieces. Just for your infomation. Nice work by the by!

you know, it is funny.
they talk about dissimilar metals and galvanic corrosion
here is a 125 year old piece of iron rebar used for the "hoop"
in the original gutter.
we will recreate, but i think we will use epoxy coated rebar.
why, i am not sure, as the original has held up remarkably well.

I will take that as a compliment though, as Mr. Paulin from Ohio is one of the good guys.

Palin, are you working in New York City? Isn't there enough work for you in Ohio? That would be a nightmare for me. I don't like the big cities anyway, much less trying to work over there. Looks good.
